Whats the grip levels at your track?

If it was me I would also try no can timing...with a 5.5 it will help in being smoother. By going to the mildest curve and then adding some back in can timing kinda works against each other... with really just adding heat.

For sure play with Throttle profiles...but don't forget to also play around with throttle min and current limiter.

The trick is to give that thing the most usable power down low...cause that 5.5 will be a monster on top.
I'd say my track is medium traction. I'm going to run it at 0 timing and throttle profile 1, I'm running my 10.5 at throttle profile 2. I run 0 drag brake with a +5 on push control. Thanks a lot for your help, don't be surprised if I PM you to pick your brain!

Hey no worries...for sure ask away..

On med bite i would start with what you would want to try first...

Then try 80-85 on the current limit..and maybe go down to 1-2 on min throttle. See how that feels...and compare your lap times to see if it's faster.

Me and my bro had the same problem with our buggys last weekend. I'm going to try the 4-40 screws and see if that helps.

I had that happen too. I just cranked the set screw down and it has been good ever since.

Default shock caps

All this talk about aluminum shock caps. Does any one know where I can get some stock plastic caps?

Default Front nose piece

Maybe I've had one too many beers while I build this......but for the life of me I can't figure out an easy way to install the little front nose body piece. Do I just finesse it/ram it through the shock brace?

Ram it after another beer. Top to one side then back in straight

Or you can take the tower mount off and install the nose piece.

To keep the doucheness going....it's actually 6 screws....have to take shock screws off to get brace totally off.

Almost time for beer-O-clock.
